The Runway Theory Workshop with Twiggy Pucci Garçon
Presented by PRIDE KIKI BALLROOM EVENTS 2017
Co-presented by Gerard X Reyes / Artist
The Runway category is all about channeling supermodels and their legendary walks. Whether the look is prêt-à-porter or haute couture, selling it to the judges takes more than just poise and skill. Poses. Turns. Strut. Stance. Attitude. The legendary Twiggy will guide you towards an unforgettable, creative runway performance as a female or male model. Open to all levels and genders.
